The Greater Lafayette Civic Theatre presents Walk Two Moons this Friday, January 31 through Sunday, February 2. This is a Civic Youth Theatre Production at the Monon Depot Theatre and is directed by Rachel Wallace. "Don't judge a man until you've walked two moons in his moccasins." Walk Two Moons is lovingly adapted for the stage with the same nuance and surprises offered by the original book. Utilizing multiple narrative frames, the play leaps back and forth through time and memory as 13-year-old Sal tells the story of the disappearance of her best friend Phoebe's mother. Determined to find her, the two girls begin seeing murderous plots and schemes around every corner. Sal shares these conspiracy theories with her Gram and Gramps during a cross-country road trip to confront her own mother, who left her and her father a year ago. But it is only through telling Phoebe's story that Sal truly understands why her mother left and whether or not they'll ever be together again.
